Rabat - “The party is over for illegal migrants,” said Italy’s new Interior Minister Matteo Slavani during a rally on June 2 in Vicenza, referring to the country’s previously friendly attitude towards the more than 700,000 migrants reported to have landed in the European country in the last five years. He added, “[T]hey will have to pack their bags. Refugees escaping from war are welcome, but all others must leave.”
